Description Erdal Ronahi 2005-02-17 17:39:43 UTC
Interlinks containing the letter "ş" are broken. An example can be found on en:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Kurdish_Autonomous_Region

The Kurdish interlink should go to 
http://ku.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ba%C5%9F%C3%BBr%C3%AA_Kurdistan%C3%AA
([[w:ku:Başûrê Kurdistanê]])

but goes to
http://ku.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ba%C3%85%C5%B8%C3%BBr%C3%AA_Kurdistan%C3%AA
([[w:ku:BaÅŸûrê Kurdistanê]]

The character "ş" is correctly converted to & # 351 ; when you edit the page and
save, but appears as something else in the interlink. 

The problem is browser independent (I checked with IE, Firefox and Opera), but
nevertheless might be related to bug 1540

This problem has been discusse several months ago on the Turkish Wikipedia as an
argument against UTF-8, but as far as I remember had been resolved.
Comment 1 Erdal Ronahi 2005-02-17 17:47:50 UTC
Note: It does not seem to be a general problem. You get from 
http://ku.wikipedia.org/wiki/M%C3%BB%C5%9F [[w:ku:Mûş]] 
to 
http://tr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mu%C5%9F_%28il%29 [[w:tr:Muş (il)]] 
and back without problems via interlinks.
